Top 10 Things Most Humans Can't Do With Their BodyLet's take a look and see if you could actually do these things. Don't get worked up if you couldn't, though. They are proven to be almost impossible to do.
It’s about impossible for most people to lick their elbows; only one person in a hundred can lick their elbow according to unofficial estimates. Unless you've been blessed with a short upper arm and an abnormally long tongue, there's no way you could be able to do it, no matter how hard you try.
I read lick your eyebrow at first, and I was surprised a hundredth of people can do it
I hate my elbow, it talks to me a lot. My conscience and my elbow keep fighting all day.
I feel like a freak for being able to do most of these stuffs
Most people can't keep their eyes open when they sneeze, with the exception of a few people. According to experts, it is the "sneeze center" of our brain that sends an involuntary reflex to clamp our eyes shut during a sneeze; it happens automatically. One age-old myth claims this is to prevent your eyes from popping out, however, it is actually the body’s way of preventing germs from entering the eye.
It seems technically impossible, but I don't believe either that it would make your eyes popping out. Most people seem to fall for the myth.
I did this and now I'm frantically searching for my eyeballs which popped out.
I sneeze with my eyes open all the time. Albeit squinted.
A part of the brain, called the cerebellum, monitors our movements and can distinguish whether sensations are expected or unexpected. Since it is trained to predict sensations when an action is caused by your own movements (but not if someone else's), if we attempt to tickle ourselves, our brain prepares itself for it. In short, the brain prevents us from self-tickling.
However, there are actually some people who could do such thing. Because of their inability to distinguish self-initiated actions due to neurological changes in the brain, people with schizophrenia are able to tickle themselves. So while they are aware of their own intentions and movements, their brain's ability of notifying the person's body about it is impaired, and therefore their brain cannot prepare itself for the tickling.
You can't tickle yourself, because tickle is when you can't tolerate the touch, but since it's you touching you, you expect it.
I can do this. Just tickling under my feet. I'm sure everyone can do that.
I can tickle myself under the arch of my foot and make myself giggle.
Takes a lot of flexibility, but I saw a video title where someone claims to do it (Never watched it though).
That takes flexibility skills. Contortionists can do that though.
I always try but never succeed. Maybe if I become more supple...
What the hell?!
Rolling your tongue is rather common; at about 25 percent of people are able to do it. However, not many can fold it backwards or make shapes like a spaceship or clover leaf. These all require muscle control and tongue dexterity, though some claim this ability indicates to the dominant genes.
I can only do the bottom right one, not the other three.
I can roll my tongue and fold it back at the same time.
I can do the bottom right one but not the other
Most people can't touch their nose and chin with the tip of their tongue; just about 10 percent of the population can. In medicine, the ability to do this act is called the Gorlin sign.
I can do this because my tongue game strong
I can do the nose but I can't do the chin
Why would anyone even do that thing
It can be done with lots of patience & consistency in physical flexibility.
I've never tried doing this but I do similar positions all the time
I once did that. Takes a bit of stretching.
I'll end up at a hospital if I tried that.
*goes for job interview*
interviewer: and what skills and qualities will you bring to this?
me: I can fit my whole fist in my mouth! Wanna see?
Most people can't put their entire fist in their mouth, since a human's hand is usually a lot bigger than the opening of their mouths. A few are able to do this, however, simply because they have small fists and big mouths.
My fists are huge so this does not work for me
Having to get it out would be painful.
Most people can actually raise their eyebrow, but it's usually just one of the two eyebrows. The ability to raise both one at a time is quite rare, but with practice, you'll be able to train your muscles to do it.
I can only do this involuntarily, when someone says or does something stupid, suspicious or aggravating. The same goes with rolling my eyes.
I can raise my right eyebrow easily, the muscles around my left eyebrow don't seem to allow it though.
I can lift the left and right independently or together, easily.
I can do this on my left hand but not on the right
Edit. I can't really do this on my left hand either if we're talking about the 2nd joint but the 1st is still much more flexible than that if others or my right hand
I looked it up on the internet and now I am 100% sure my thumbs are double jointed at the 2nd thumb joint.
I can do that but at the lower joint than the one in the picture.
My friend can do that she does weird stuff with her finger
Most couldn't wiggle their ears; only 15% of people can. But, fear not, for you could still train yourself to do it!
I can do that. I use to wiggle my ears to annoy my hairdresser when I was a kid.
This is practically impossible for me to do without using my hands
I don't have much muscles in my ears unfortunately
That can be done easily by going on thrill rides, watching horror movies in theaters, going to haunted houses, meeting stars you've anticipated so much, doing extreme athletic moves, or not following your healthy routines of each day.
I saw a T.V. programme as a smaller child where people (professional magicians) could do very extreme things with their body. The only one I remember was a rather chunky man who could make his heartbeat stop for almost a whole minute.
No thanks, I wanna live a little longer.
Why would anyone do that
This would require a different type of joint I think
I can do this! It's fun to freak people out with it.
I can almost do that
Unless its broken
Most people can't twitch their nose, unless they have a "Hemifacial Spasm". In fact, even Elizabeth Montgomery, the actress who portrayed Samantha Stephens in Bewitched, just moved her lip to make it seem like her nose was twitching, when it really wasn't.
What's that? Watching twitch all day and sticking your nose to the screen?
I have to move my mouth like most people.
Does flaring your nostrils quickly count. lol
I can do that in both joints in my arm(excluding my wrist)
Without moving your head it would be just a lil difficult
why would anyone want to do this? It's disgusting.
Actually, no one can be completely steady as the body's designed to move & our motor skills are imperfect. Yet, we exert energy at the same time & experience fatigue. We're always unsteady & shaky & even when we sleep we move around.
That's impossible for everyone
Especially your belly?
